A child molester who escaped from a correctional facility in Keithville Sunday, has been captured.

Officials say Bryan Roberts escaped Thursday after walking away from his work in the kitchen.

Two others, Tommy and Loree Harley, were also arrested after escaping.

Shreveport police say, they were able to capture him in the Highland neighborhood after they received a tip.

"Our officers of course went directly to that area, and were able to locate the apartment that the caller said he was in," said Officer Bill Goodin.

"Officers made entry to the apartment, they actually contacted the occupant of the apartment and were allowed inside and were subsequently hiding in a bathroom there.

Roberts was serving a 20-year sentence for molestating a juvenile.

Officials say, the escape could add five years to his sentence.
